Virtual machines allow you to design custom-built machines (servers), or take copies of an existing computer’s specs, which are stored in the cloud and accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. Essentially, virtual machines give you a remote desktop that safely keeps your important files and allows you to access them from anywhere. VMs are regularly backed up and provide integrated software management. They are easily customizable and come with storage and support.
